In my ongoing search for Learning Management Systems, I came across schoology (http://www.schoology.com).


Anyone heard of this or is using it?

Hi Joe,

Schoology is one of the new generation of LMS systems. Avenues in NY just did an extensive evaluation of the LMS world, and we're not bowled over by any of the traditional designs. Last time I spoke with Dirk Delo, their CTO, they were leaning toward EdModo, which incorporates extensive social networking and collaboration tools. We are grappling with the question of whether to invest in another LMS (some of our teachers like Haiku) or pursue a different approach such as WordPress or an interactive eBook. We're going to run several pilots next year.

Hi Joe,

We've been using Schoology for close to two years now.  While I initially had my reservations (I'm from a Moodle background) the LMS has grown on me and the students seem to really enjoy it.  It was easy to integrate into Active Directory and Jeremy (the CEO of Schoology) has been more than helpful anytime we asked for tweaks.  We eventually spent the $500 (the only cost so far) to brand it to our school.

Let me know if you want to poke around in one of my classes and I can set you up with a test account.

Regards,

Jesse

Thanks for the response Jesse!

 

From my initial use, I like the look/feel of it!

 

And thank you for the offer.. I might take you up on it!

(I am looking at doing something myself, but it would be great to see how someone else has set up a class/course).


Thanks again,
